    Dear Readers, Finally we can it seems that spring is almost in the air.  Weather wise it’s not that cold anymore and it looks like Mr. Winter is going to say goodbye. Soon you have to start cleaning up the yard and the flower beds.  And the trees in the backyard will start to have leaves [...]

Hello dear readers,

Where did the time go?  We’re not on the 2nd month of the year 2019 and we are still experiencing winter weather lately.  It’s not just an ordinary month but a month full of love because of Valentine’s day.  So let’s spread love not just to our significant others but also to our family and friends.  Gift-giving has been a very popular way of expressing your love mostly to your spouses, significant others but it’s really not necessary as long as you show them how you love them and how devouted you are to them. As they say, do not collect materials things but make beautiful memories with your loved ones.  It’s been the 2nd year now that I do not have any Valentine’s date since my hubby passed away.  But I’ve been surrounded with my children and grandchildren who makes me feel loved as a mother and as Lola Connie.  Life goes on and who knows what tomorrow brings in our lives.  I wish everyone a Happy Valentines’ day.

On April 2019, Lea Salonga will be in Calgary to serenade us at the Arts Common, so for those who do not have tickets yet, visit ticketmaster.ca.  Don’t miss one of our very talented, international artist who is not just a singer but has done a lot of broadway shows especially the very first Miss Saigon.  But for this month, do not miss Orange and Lemons, The Love Tour on February 22, 2019 at the Polish Canadian Cultural Center.  Make this your Valentine’s date with your loved ones and don’t miss the hits song PINOY AKO and many more.  I, for one will make sure I enjoy this evening of beautiful music from Orange and Lemons.

One of our interesting news in this issue is the Introduction of Filipino Language and Culture at Alberta Schools Starting 2020.  Premier Rachel Notley has announced that the Filipino language will be included in the curriculum for K-12 starting school year 2020.  I, for one who have always celebrated the BUWAN NG WIKA for the Filipino community felt so happy that now even children who are born in Canada will get the chance to learn their national language from the country where their parents came from.   For over 6 years, we have been celebraing this during the month of August.  This year, we will have it on August 3, 2019 and we invite all Filipino-Canadians to come out and participate in  this full day celebration of our national language, the Filipino language. For sponsorship on our upcoming WIKA AT KULTURANG PINOY FESTIVAL, please check the poster that’s in the inside page of this issue.

And for my all my readers, remember this – “IT’ ‘S BETTER TO LOVE THAN NOT TO LOVE AT ALL”  and as they say “LOVE IS LOVELIER THE THIRD TIME AROUND.”  And I birthday celebrants this month a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and couples who have their wedding anniversaries this month, MANY MORE YEARS OF TOGETHERNESS AND LOVE!

Until next issue, God bless everyone!
